Egyptian celebrations

Stomaching the oppression of own and foreign peoples: Capacity or disability? Rights to victory and liberation demand the duties of struggling and resisting. We all look forward to the day when Egyptians rightly celebrate.

It was not long ago that Cairo and Alexandria dressed their streets up in euphoria, following Egypt's achievements in football. A chance that Obama's favorite dictator in the Middle East, Hosni Mubarak, seized to silently display his architectonic taste - or total lack of it - in the iron wall devised to further choke and humiliate the people of Gaza.

Shortly after, the death of the regime's religious backbone, Sheikh Tantawi, lit up fresh carnivals in the private corners  where Egyptians can still take shelter from the dictatorship.

Yet the fact that such corners remain confined to their inner selves and some internet channels, begs the question of whether the North Africans' celebrations go beyond the domain of random events that carry no merit or not.

The Tel-Aviv regime order to its faithful lackey of the Nile proved to be such a difficult task on him, that only recently was him showing a more positive evolution at Heidelberg University's medical care units where his bile problems had pulled him.

But one whose luck was not as auspicious was the tyrant's own whitewasher: Sheikh Tantawi fell victim of a heart attack during a visit to the occupied Arabia, another of Obama's top destinations for dictatorship and training of extremists later dressed up as Muslims.

Tantawi's notorious support for the anti Arab and anti Islamic Israeli settlement of Cairo had caused such disgust on the Egyptians of opened senses, that his passing away could not help to produce in them sighs with titles such as one less around.

I am sure Egyptians understand that tyrants don't come back to life, but do they understand that the hijackers of the West do have an inexhaustible arsenal of potential dictators and respective accessories that pretty much do the trick?

What point or merit is there in relying on the natural deaths of successive oppressors who amount to an immortal one? Only perseverance in resistance can break the chain. If liberation and the victory of self-determination are to come after a passive waiting, why would God's fate choose so for us and not those who came before us who died in oppression? A passive waiting which doesn't even involve an inner development, but rather an alienation into a chauvinistic pride, bears no other fruits but the washing of hands of the tyranny itself.

Sometimes the question do Arabs hate Westerners or Persians the most is raised. The real answer seems to be none of the above, as they would seem to hate themselves in the first place, coping pathologically well to the oppression of their fellow people and lands.
